    <p>Hi Grendel,</p>

    <p> </p>

    <p>After searching various Norway related posts, your name kept popping up. So I wanted to ask for some information and advice.</p>

    <p> </p>

    <p>I am moving to Stavanger in Norway for at least three months this summer (heading out mid june). I am moving to Stavanger because I have accommodation sorted there (girlfriend's parents <img src="<fileStore.core_Emoticons>/emoticons/thumbdown.gif.09a24edc84304f2edac2dcbedcc94263.gif" alt=":thumbdown:" />)</p>

    <p> </p>

    <p>Im a climber and consultant with approximately 3/4 years experience. I have the usual tickets and an Honors Degree in Arboriculture. </p>

    <p> </p>

    <p>Do you have or know of any useful contacts in the Stavanger area?</p>

    <p> </p>

    <p>Are there any obvious differences between the Arb scene in the UK and Norway?</p>

    <p> </p>


    <p> </p>

    <p>Whats the word for Arborist in Norwegian??? </p>

    <p> </p>

    <p>Im absolutely grateful for any info on the matter.</p>

  2. Hi All (forum newbie) Can anyone elaborate on how their Scafell boots are doing? I was all for buying a pair but some of the opinions here have really put me off. Are they really built to fall apart as mentioned and if so, how are Arbortec on their returns/repair, good or bad experiences? I planned on getting the smooth brown leather version rather than the neon green as they would be easier to clean and look after, quick wipe and a wax/polish etc. Can anyone restore a little faith for me? The previous reviews are very mixed. Also, does anyone know where these are made? They look *very* similar to a few of the older Raichle boot models and also some of the La Sportiva boots, was wondering if Arbortec have them made for them by another company or something. Thanks in advance
